    AT Program: Thresholds and Bottlenecks

    'Threshold concepts' refer to a theory about the nature of learning within a discipline—that in studying a given discipline there are key concepts that, once learned, irrevocably transform the way we perceive the subject. 'Bottlenecks' are likewise a discipline-specific phenomenon and refer to key pinch points where students commonly struggle. Identifying and planning for thresholds and bottlenecks are an important part of course design, pedagogical practice, and assessment.

Please note that, while Apprenticeship in Teaching (AT) workshops are open to faculty, they are designed for graduate students. Presentations and many of the exercises are designed for instructors with relatively little teaching experience. Some workshops are more appropriate than others for those with more teaching experience. Faculty with a particular interest in one of the AT workshops should contact James Olsen before registering.
